Sled routes in the mountains of High Pyrenees

It's difficult to make sledding in the High Pyrenees, because the mentality of those responsible for the ski resorts is lagging behind that of those responsible for stations in the Alps. Basically, they do not want a dog sled on the pisted down trails, they want to reserve them for cross-country skiers. However, the station "Payolle" still pack down some tracks when they do not make paying the tracks, thus we can make sledding. And in these cases, the coexistence of cross-country skiers and sledges is going very well.

So I put below some links for routes that I propose in the Hautes-Pyrenees, some are on pisted down tracks when access is allowed, others are on off-piste tracks:

My beginnings with sledding were made with an artisanal sled, manufactured by my father. With fiberglass runners and aluminum frame,it was a little too big sled, but it worked very well anyway.
